Mr. Big

Yeongtong finally has a burger place other than McDonald's.
Mr Big is a handmade burger joint located on the first floor of the Worldmark building - if you look up while you're walking in Yeongtong, it's hard to miss this building. I grabbed a burger for take-out one evening and the staff seemed a bit confused as to how to deal with a foreigner, and the menu above the register is all in Korean. I went simple with a "cheese in cheeseburger," which I had no clue what that implied. The menu includes a nice selection of random burgers, a couple of pasta and rice dishes, fries and onion rings, and a few other items - I don't remember all of them. The have a few tables on the lower level and more on an upstairs level.
The burger was well made and tasted good. The bun also seemed to not be a purely white flour bun. I figured out the title of the burger referred to it having two different types of cheese.

The toppings were your typical fare with onion, tomato, lettuce, ketchup, etc. I would go back for burgers again, but I typically tend to stop by Burger Blues (located by Yeongtong-Gu Office in front of Samsung Electronics' Jungang Mun) instead when I leave work and have a handmade burger craving.


  1. Hi, I live in Yeongtong, and like Mr. Big burgers. But I don't know where Burger Blues is, nor do I know the Yeongtong-Gu office, or Samsung Jungang Mun. Can you provide more details about this place and its location? Thanks!

  2. Hi Barry,
    Sorry I've taken so long to respond - life has been pretty lately and was having trouble locating my Burger Blues menu ^^;. I'm going to post a blog on Burger Blues here in a minute.

    Thanks for the question!

  3. That should have been "pretty hectic" ^^
